I knew I had not published here in awhile but had no clue it was this long, with the last post dated September 19th.  I had a week long vacation during that time and also had some work and personal things that have eaten up some of my normal gym schedule.  However fear not, I have still been exercising, I just haven’t had much time to punch it out on the keyboard.

Today I hit mostly dumbbells in my chest pushing session.  I felt SLIGHTLY better than the last time I did chest so maybe I am finally starting to move the needle back in the positive direction instead of flat or downward.  I have been trying to be diligent with getting at least one run in per week and ideally two.  I put in nearly four and a half miles during my Sunday run, another high for 2016.  As has been the case for awhile, I am experiencing minimal post run aches and pains which is a positive thing and makes me hopeful I can keep slowly stretching my distance.
